Ok so we have been building our chicken house/coop/run and my husbands cousin said she HAD to get rid of her chickens asap because of city laws. So my hubby jumped in the truck and got them! Ugh they are awesome almost 5 month old and so big and healthy looking! (My friend just couldnt believe they were pullets) They are used to kids and being handled since chicks and there are 5 pullets and a roo (very very new so hope I am calling them right) We have the coop almost done but the roof ugh it started raining and had to put a tarp up. There are three nice size dog houses in there and two perches.....so it is Raining so much that it filled my horse trough in an hour!!! And of coarse the water built up on the tarp and collapsed. The chickens are roosting on the perch that is now being rained on!! Ugh they are soaked!! Half the building is covered with the tarp! The other perch is covered and still they stay in the rain! Do I go and move them?! Its raining so much I tried to climb the latter and get the fallen tarp BUT I just sank ugh!!!! Here is the picture I took today. Hardware cloth is going where the orange is!
